At last............... a Senator with spine. Very
refreshing, Senator Lieberman. I can now
understand why you severed relations with
the Democratic party, and became an Independent.
The Associated Press reports that "Sen. Joseph
Lieberman said Sunday the United States should
consider a military strike against Iran because
of Tehran’s involvement in Iraq".
This is important on several counts...... because
we’ve all known for some time that it was long
overdue. Secondly.......... it is striking that the
AP didn’t attack Lieberman over this advice,
when if President Bush had mentioned it, they
would have been ready to eviscerate him.
Thirdly, it is miraculous that the AP didn’t tilt
this interview 60* to the left, as they do with
most other news of which they disapprove.
"I think we've got to be prepared to take
aggressive military action against the Iranians
to stop them from killing Americans in Iraq,"
Lieberman said. "And to me, that would
include a strike over the border into Iran,
where we have good evidence that they
have a base at which they are training these
people coming back into Iraq to kill our
Lo and behold......... there is at least one
Senator with the brains to look beyond the
liberal clap-trap and see the world as it is.
Tehran will not be happy until it possesses the
nuclear arms that we prevented Saddam
from obtaining. They waged war against each
other in order to lay the foundation for the
"winner to take all" policy. That included
all of the surrounding region, and it’s strategic
importance to the rest of the world.
What part of the problem doesn’t Congress
understand? Can they possibly be that blind,
just intent on being voted into office, or has the
MSM indoctrinated them into the fold also?
Lieberman went on to say, "We've said so
publicly that the Iranians have a base in Iran at
which they are training Iraqis who are coming
in and killing Americans. By some estimates,
they have killed as many as 200 American
soldiers," Lieberman said. "Well, we can tell
them we want them to stop that. But if there's
any hope of the Iranians living according to
the international rule of law and stopping,
for instance, their nuclear weapons development,
we can't just talk to them."
"They can't believe that they have immunity
for training and equipping people to come
in and kill Americans," he said. "We cannot
let them get away with it. If we do, they'll take
that as a sign of weakness on our part and we
will pay for it in Iraq and throughout the region
and ultimately right here at home."
These words seem vaguely familiar,........... as
when President Bush made similar statements
about Iraq, and their involvement in 9/11. Swine
such as these, do not leave written records or trails
to be followed back to them. They "help out"
by giving sanctuary to sought terrorists, providing
funds and weapons, and establishing camps and
bases on their soil, in order to train "insurgents"
to be smuggled into other countries.
Senator Lieberman made his statements on
"Face the Nation" on CBS.
